Is It Time For 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Golf SportWagen bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Golf SportWagen steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Golf SportWagen shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Golf SportWagen’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2018 Golf SportWagen Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Golf SportWagen is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
